Default Siri says some strange things...

At first I thought Apple's Siri was a little needless, but after seeing some of the responses she can give, I almost want an iPhone 4S.

Not a single person found this to be the least bit worthwhile?

Ok. Siri is sensitive ... but so am I. It gets in my way all of the time.

Kinda funny. Just wait, there'll be an Android app that will do the same thing within a few months.

Haha, that was in the WSJ... my favorite was the "Beam me up, Scotty" command.

What's amusing is even the same question will generate different responses.

There already is. It doesn't work as well though from the reports I've seen, but it's close. Siri is pretty damn impressive given how many sites & services it can interface with, Apple did pretty well buying up the company that developed Siri.
